First Look at “Holidays at Disney Springs” at Walt Disney World – 5 Amazing Experiences

Visiting Disney World during November and December is a great time to experience the Holidays in a way that only Disney can offer. As everyone knows, Disney World is second to none when it comes to creating unbelievable atmosphere and experiences, but during the holiday season they turn it up from 10 to 11. Disney spreads out their holiday love throughout the parks and resorts, of course. But, you’ll also find amazing holiday decorations and displays at Disney Springs that will put you in the holiday spirit! Here are samplings of Holidays at Disney Springs.


5 – Unique Christmas Trees

Disney Springs features some very unique Christmas trees! Below you’ll see two of them.

4 – Beautiful Holiday Wreaths

1 – Meet Santa at Santa’s Chalet

In a new location across from Ghiradelli, Santa’s Chalet is the perfect spot to meet the big man himself! Santa will appear through December 24. Santa Goofy takes over December 25-29 since Santa will be resting from all his hard work. Santa greets daily from 12 pm – 10 pm. Like last year, guests will check-in to receive a pager so guests can shop, dine, and enjoy Disney Springs instead of waiting in line. Be sure to check in to receive a pager and then return within 10 minutes to the podium. After that it will be a very short wait. Disney PhotoPass photographers are on hand to capture the moment. If you have Disney’s Memory Maker Package, your PhotoPass photos with Santa are included. As always, you may use your own camera!
